“Very tasty with friendly service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Walking up the dark gloomy staircase we were doubting our choice for dinner but once the doors opened upstairs we were pleasantly surprised and reassured. Tables were tastefully set with good lighting. Staff were quiet spoken and polite.
The food was delicious, so much so that one of our party ordered a second starter. Shouldn't have though as the servings are not small. Each dish was very flavoursome.
Located just opposite the Civic Theatre this was an excellent pre-show choice.

“Good food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Another Thai restaurant - not really any different to most. Very good service, food was good, but again not out of the ordinary. Food was out quickly and hot. Nice views from the windows of the civic theatre.

“Avoid this place !”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Went there tonight on a groupon voucher and it was terrible experience.
The voucher was a rip-off; so many things you are not allowed to which are not stated on the voucher; you end up saving not much at all.
The waiter was nice and admit it's their fault not specifying clearly what was not included and took my order saying it's all good; what wasn't our surprise when we get at the counter to pay? The supposed manager was rude and said we have to pay extra and nothing else and actually didn't care.

The food? It was blend; the entrees were all frozen stuff you get from supermarket. I ordered red curry and what came looked like stock very watery and tasted water if it wasn't for the chilly.

Very disappointing. I tried much better thai restaurants in auckland. This one is a joke. I know understand why they keep having vouchers since the last few months.

Don't waste your money in this place; there are a lot of places in town which deserve your money much more than this place

“Best outside ove indonesia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Soo great! Food is absolutely amazing & service is brilliant most confortable thai restaurant been in since being in indonesia. Atmosphere was very tranquil whilst at the same time quite lively. Food was so scrumptious its instantly become one ove our favourite date night places out. Service is impeccible. Lively friendly smiles even as we sipped our beverages & honned in on our delicious dinner. Such a fantastic experience.
